Thanks a lot everyone.

I think there's one failure left to look at on Darwin (

getaddrinfo() - service name not available for the specified socket type at
t/04local-client-v6.t line 28.
../cpan/IO-Socket-IP/t/04local-client-v6.t ........................

But I notice that same failure is affecting some other oses on CpanTesters:
Where should we go from here? Fix this failure also and resmoke - or once
CPANTesters is happy with it we can move on to the next stage of smoking
the module against CPAN?

There are some other failures at but at first
glance they look unrelated, so I'm inclined to move onto the next stage
when this is fixed but I submit to the wisdom of the porters.
